Crocheted wire and blue topaz jewellery

 Hook in hand - must crochet!   well that is definitely how it has been this week - I completed this matching set earlier this week but I've been waiting for good light to photograph and share it.
I am not sure what drew me to these pretty delicate blue topaz tumblechip beads, they definitely aren't autumnal! Maybe icy weather is on its way!

Crocheted wire and moonstone tumblechip tiara

And now for something completely different to share for this weeks Wedding Wednesday post - not content with just knitting tiaras, I decided to try my hand at crocheting one. This tiara was crocheted directly onto the silver plate tiara band. I am happy with the way this has turned out, it is completely one of a kind as it is very random -  I just grabbed my crochet hook and started crocheting- no pattern just an idea!

Black glass bead wire wrapped bracelet

Today I tried something new, this is an idea that had been developing in my head over the past week and I finally had a go at working on it for this weeks 'Monday's Make'. This bracelet has been made with silver plate wire and black  glass cube beads - I am happy with the end result but if I make any more I will be adapting the design slightly as I am already thinking about ways I can improve it!

I am therefore happy to make others in any colour although the design won't be quite the same

Jewellery in rich purples and pinks

Yesterday I made this stunning necklace and earring set for Wedding Wednesday, the colours are sumptuous and I think this would be a fabulous for Mother of the Bride jewellery.
It is made with Swarovski crystals, glass beads and round bronze beads.
